BREAKING NEWS: BEN ROETHLISBERGER IS AN ASS, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED REPORTS.
Other than the specific details, I don't see what this article says that we couldn't have reasonably concluded already. My summary of that article is that Roethlisberger often treats other people, especially women, like crap, to say the least; he likes to go out and party as if he's still a college student; and he often exhibits extremely poor judgment. Am I missing something else that made this article worth reading (and for that matter writing and publishing)?
Once football starts and the Steelers start winning again (which is the most likely outcome because Roethlisberger is an elite NFL quarterback and has a good team around him), everyone will push Roethlisberger's unsavory character traits to the back of their minds, the only difference from the past being that any indication that he's still being an ass will get publicity. Look at Tiger Woods; the sports media are back to reporting Tiger Tiger Tiger Tiger at every golf tournament, and all the reporting is about his play. There will be rampant (stupid) speculation the first few weeks if Leftwich or Dixon plays well, but after that, assuming Roethlisberger changes his behavior, the only reporting on him will be done about his play.
